Abstract The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of a chitin derivative (CSE) on the adherence of Candida albicans to acrylic. Fungal adherence to acrylic dentures is considered an essential step in the development of denture stomatitis. Adherence of C. albicans to acrylic pieces (5 x 5mm) was assessed microscopically using a calibrated ocular objective and expressed as number of adherent yeasts/mm2 of acrylic. CSE was prepared from commercial chitin (crab shell) and from chitin isolated from C. albicans blastospores. The effect of both CSE types on the adherence of C. albicans to acrylic was examined in two experimental systems: CSE present during the adherence assay and acrylic pieces pretreated with CSE prior to the assay. Both CSE types exerted a significant inhibitory effect when tested in the two experimental systems. These findings are significant for possible prevention of denture stomatitis.
